Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Baking cookies is one of my favorite hobbies.  Chocolate chunk cookies are among my very favorites.  I had the idea for these cookies last week while walking through Trader Joe’s when I saw their freeze dried strawberries. So glad I added them to my cookies. They are colorful and delicious! Be sure to not substitute fresh or frozen strawberries….I’ve tried it and it makes a soggy, not great cookie. Freeze dried is the way to go!  Hope you enjoy!

How To Bake Cookies

Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Why Do We Need To Cream Butter And Sugar When Baking Cookies?

  1. Creaming incorporates the maximum amount of air bubbles so a recipe will rise in the oven and be light in texture.  Creaming is done by beating with either a paddle attachment from your stand mixer or it can also be done by hand.  Start on low speed until all ingredients have been incorporated, then switch to medium speed, making sure to scrape the bowl down periodically to make sure all ingredients have been mixed thoroughly.

    These are really tasty! I made these and it reminded me of chocolate covered strawberry, the strawberry is subtle. I used 3 tablespoons of pudding mix powder and it turned out great.

    Hey, I am planning on baking these cookies for my sorority this weekend, but I have some gluten free sisters. Is there a gluten free recipe for this or has anyone tried to make these cookies gluten free? The cookies sound amazing and I really want to make them!
